Quest Q20, Q40 and Quest PRO Review

Quest Q20, Quest Q40 And Quest PRO Review

Quest Metal Detectors has released its first new metal detectors Quest Q20, Quest Q40 and Quest PRO! While the first two models are perfect for newbie seekers, the Pro version is high quality enough to meet the need of experienced treasure hunters on different terrains.

But wait a minute… It reminds me of something… New Minelab Equinox series? Really? They look like Minelab Equinox!

Quest Metal Detectors

Quest metal detectors have a good price-quality ratio. Decent supply kits with headphones, bag, find pounch, cap and small plastic shovel as a gift (that’s a really awesome supplement for your metal detecting equipment!). Lightweight, interesting design, simple navigation menu, huge displays, flashlight, capacious batteries are the most distinctive qualities of Quest metal detectors.

Quest Q20 has three composite foldable rod and control box, which are very similar to Minelab Equinox. The length of the metal detector shaft is adjustable, from 80 cm to 130 cm. There is a built-in 1200 mAh Li-Po battery. Its claimed battery life is more than 20 hours.

Quest Q20 the simplest version in the series. Can it be a competitor for Garrett ACE 200 and Garrett ACE 300?

This is the most powerful model in the Quest Metal Detectors line. Quest Pro, compared to Quest 40, has IP67 waterproof rating (10 feet maximum depth), 2 DD coils in the box (this is really cool!), but the main difference of this metal detector compared to the previous one is… Multi-Frequency! This metal detector can work on three frequencies – 5 kHz, 13 kHz and 20 kHz. Does it remind you of anything? 🙂
